THE LIVING LADDER EAST PORTLAND, OR
After the intervention of the freeway, the town is split into two parts. Current town center’ situates right off the freeway where trafﬁc tends to pass by. The town lacks a sense of destination and identity.
We proposed shifting a town center to 92nd and duke, which is a more active part. We hope to develop and energize the city with elements such as a plaza for public gathering, mixed use developments, vocational/technical schools, jobs and local businesses, improved bike paths to promote alternative transportation and site accessibility, and green street with bioswale linking the new Neighborhoods, and water feature which functions as ďŹ ltration cisterns capturing water runoff. Driven by considerations of live-work, Transportation, healthy living conditions, and our views to create sustainable livings, moreover we Concern about improving the least pleasant area such as the area between i-205 and the row houses; giving it a nice feature. Our goal is to make the Pleasant space accessible to everyone and make sure everybody is being equally recognized.

With the annexation of this area of east portland and a large housing boom in the 1990s, the area was rezoned to accommodate multifamily housing. More recently there has been a series of new developments including apartments and townhouses. With the integration of these new developments, the goal is to provide a healthy public realm and successful transitions between single-family housing and new developments.
